The TRIAD system, from Fair Isaac Corporation, continues to be the global standard in account and customer management solutions for consumer credit grantors as it provides sophisticated risk management functionality in the credit limit management, collections and marketing communications environments.

The functionalities of TRIAD 8 provide us with the ability to make successful strategic decisions that enhance our bottom line. Through this consulting contract, PIC’s strategy consultants will provide extensive support to ensure that our new strategies are implemented smoothly and comply with the requirements of the Act.”
Stephen Leonard, Managing Director of PIC Solutions, comments, “PIC Solutions has been involved in implementing and managing TRIAD since it was first implemented in Edcon and we look forward to strengthening our relationship with them.
